I have been bringing the bedrooms of a summer camp into the present day decorating-wise. Regrettably, I did not take a ‘before’ picture, which would have shown the dramatic transformation. Essentially, the room was a dingy beige-yellow with burnt orange carpet and drapes to match which had not changed in 40 (yes, 40) years! A fresh beige-gray paint color and soft grey carpet were the foundation for this very serene room. Linen drapes in a flax color frame the windows and various accent pieces with soft gold and glass complete the look.
Keeping accessories minimal and staying in a monotone color scheme add to the soft yet very glamorous treatment that this room received. All white on white linens with the classic greek key design result in a light and breezy feeling for this summer bedroom.
What makes it work?
Below are closer looks at some of the elements in this room.
